Remember when Taylor Swift surprised a Dartmouth family with a visit at Hasbro Children's Hospital?  The Garcia family has since been able to leave Hasbro, but they still need your help. Their friends and family are holding a benefit to help their baby boy, who was born with multiple medical complications.Right now, Brayden is 11 months-old. He was initially born with Down Syndrome and TEF/EA, which is a condition where the esophagus does not extend down to the belly and connects to the trachea.

To fix this condition he underwent a five hour surgery at 4 days-old, but didn't get any breaks after that. Little Brayden then had to take on Pulmonary hypertension, chronnic lung disease, heart disease, and an open Atrial Septal Defect.

With all these issues after such a long recovery beforehand, he needed more surgery. Brayden needed a Tracheotomy, which required him to be placed on a ventilator at all times to help his breathing. The hole in his heart (open Atrial Septal Defect) only grew as he got older, so doctors decided Brayden would get open heart surgery at 7 months old.

He spent almost the whole first year of his life in hospitals, but after 9 months the Garcia's baby boy finally went home. The family's struggles won't end there, however. The 24-hour medical care needed for Brayden becomes increasingly more difficult, along with caring for their 6 year-old, as the parents try to support each other financially and emotionally.

In March, the family got support from an unexpected place. During a visit to the area, Taylor Swift stopped by the Hasbro Children's Hospital in Providence for a visit to the Garcia kids. The visit was a complete surprise to the family, as she spent five hours hanging out with the little ones.

The Garcia Family Benefit Raffle/ Chinese Auction will be held on Saturday November 15 at Whites of Westport from 6 pm to 11 pm. The proceeds from the event will go to this hard working family, with a long road still ahead of them.

Tickets are available for $25 by calling Catherine Lemos at (508) 264-2015.
